UBS with IntoUniversity

UBS with IntoUniversity

Biography

For over 30 years UBS has supported projects in the neighbouring London Borough of Hackney, helping to transform education in the borough. UBS has partnered IntoUniversity (IU) since 2007, working towards a shared goal of tackling educational disadvantage. IU provides a holistic programme of support at its learning centres, for pupils to attain a university place or another chosen aspiration. UBS’s support has helped IU to grow from a neighbourhood service based in Hoxton to a Hackney-wide provision reaching over 1,800 young people annually. In 2015, 80% of IU Hackney school leavers progressed to university, compared to the national average of 37% (23% for all students from Free School Meal backgrounds).
